Breakfast has got even better, just superb. Staff really nice and great location. Only gripe was that I could not find RTE2 on telly to watch match - but that might be my fault!

10/10 Exceptional

They were incredibly welcoming, very cordial, and gave great recommendations on where to eat in Cork. It's located right across from UCC which has a beautiful and scenic campus, and is within a 10-15 minute walk of everything you need in the main part of the city, but just enough outside to miss any city noise. The scones they give for the introductory tea and at breakfast were honestly so delicious! The bed was wonderfully comfortable, and as a king size that was two singles pushed together (which is common practice, so that's not a downside) it was barely noticeable because they used a high quality mattress topper. The only downside is the bathroom which was very little, but still we had a wonderful stay. Be mindful that when you book through third party websites like this that the breakfasts aren't included at will cost an extra €14 each if you choose to avail of it (but do because it's really something else).
